Urushi is completely natural but contains a compound that can cause an allergic reaction in the skin similar to poison ivy. Taking precautions such as wearing gloves, wearing a long-sleeve shirt, and thoroughly washing areas that came in contact with urushi will prevent an allergic reaction. If you accidentally touch Urushi, wipe the area with turpentine immediately and wash with soap. If you develop a rash, do not touch the area and consult your doctor immediately for medical attention. Applying lotion will also help protect the skin. Tsutsumi Asakichi Urushi will not be liable for any adverse reactions caused by handling Urushi.
